I can't quite make my mind up - to carry them off do you need to be slim and tanned?

Be interested in any opinions! Ta

Love them.

Or go for pale grey or oatmeal for a "White Lite" look.

I just bought a pair called 'relaxed skinny fit' from Next petite range (am 5ft and a size 6/8) They are quite casual. I will probably wear them rolled to the ankle with flat leather sandals and vests in the summer (if we ever get one)

I have young children and keep my white Baxters white by washing them in the washing machine w a little bleach squirted in the laundry detergent drawer, along w the detergent. I will probably give them a good soaking soon, too. But, white jeans and small children can work, I think.

I wear them in winter and summer - they are far more versatile than I ever thought they would be. Do it, OP - get some!

I think white jeans are the sort of garment that needs to be kept sparkly white. Until DS stops wiping his toddler paws on my legs, I'll stick to the traditional...

Oh, goodness. Where do I start if baxters have gorn.............

White is fine, if worn in the right setting. Love white jeans and shorts.

Mmmmm not sure I want to be channelling Euro Trash tbh grin!

I think its for the worse - they were just odd and the denim was different.

I havent' seen Liz H in white jeans in ages and I'm an avid follower of hers on twitter.

Changed the cut of baxter jeans shock. Just as I need some more, typical! MrsCB how have they changed? Bet it's for the worse.

ClearlyDad - I resent the implication of tact! I pride myself on being wild and free and entirely lacking in self knowledge ...
Looks like there'll be plenty of us this summer! Quite like them in winter with tan/ brown (classsy brown of course) stuff too ...

I think Euro Trash is the point with white jeans isn't it?

cleangreens Fri 19-Apr-13 18:00:37

I love them - not too much in the way of blingy jewellery with them though or would probably look a bit euro trash!

Fuckitthatlldo Fri 19-Apr-13 17:57:27

Oooh I dunno. I'd be scared to sit down and brush past things. Don't they just get totes filthy?

MarshaBrady Fri 19-Apr-13 17:48:44

I bought some off-white MiH ones this year, yet to wear.

Also love the pale/white with white or monochrome thing.

bulletproofgerbil Fri 19-Apr-13 17:47:02

I've always wanted to wear them but am totally the wrong shape and they don't flatter me one bit. If they do suit you though I think they can look sexy, classic and 'European' in a good way. I don't think it's to do with how thin/tall you are but whether they suit your shape and what you wear them with. Worth trying some on and seeing what you reckon.

squoosh Fri 19-Apr-13 17:46:18

Yep, I'd be paranoid that I'd start to spontaneously bleed as I eased my limbs into my Liz Hurley jeans. I'd spend the day manically checking my arse, not a good look.

White trousers = invitation to period stains

santamarianovella Fri 19-Apr-13 17:43:56

i love them.just not the thin stretchy kind ,i have a 7FAM and its perfect.
i would love the MIH kick flare in white.

I wouldn't wear them myself, I'd be too afraid of people mistaking my bum for the moon! However, I think they look nice on other people as long as they are the right size (obviously) and the right cut for the persons shape. I say go for it

noddyholder Fri 19-Apr-13 17:30:58

Love them. No one can ever out white jean la hurley She wears them all year round which makes her queen imo grin I have a few pairs and wear a lot

polyhymnia Fri 19-Apr-13 17:29:31

I'm neither young nor slim but I do love them too and feel good in them in summer.
Buy the best quality you can.
Agree they, and the tops, etc you put with them, need to be pretty plain to look classy not tacky. I really like a monochrome look, with a simple black or black and white top -specially with a bit of a tan. But lots of colours work with them too.

squoosh Fri 19-Apr-13 15:22:21

You need to write to Liz Hurley asking her to grant you permission to wear white jeans.

AnonYonimousBird Fri 19-Apr-13 15:06:01

Ooo, golly, I was expecting a resounding "what the hell are you thinking"..

Thanks all, good to know I'm not alone in desiring a pair!

MrsCampbellBlack Fri 19-Apr-13 15:00:01

River Island amelie also nice in clean white.

MrsCampbellBlack Fri 19-Apr-13 14:59:47

They're quite high but they're last years and I think they've changed their cut - they certainly have of the indigo baxters to my chagrin.
